Wedding Band: A Love Hate Story in Black and White – The Lyric Hammersmith

31 May - 29 June 2024

Set in the deep south of the USA in 1918 when interracial marriage was illegal, Julia, a black seamstress, and Herman, a white baker, are defying all odds with their secret love. 

They face vicious judgement not just by society but also their closest friends and family. As they finally begin to believe their dreams for a future together are possible, Herman becomes a victim of the Spanish flu. Determined to save him, Julia is faced with decisions that will change her life.

Award-winning American playwright Alice Childress’ Wedding Band is a searing and powerful masterpiece which offers a stark reflection of the reality she was writing in during the Civil Rights era. And directed by Monique Touko following her smash-hit success School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play at the Lyric.
